Winter can be bad for health: physiotherapists

To make walking in slippery conditions safer, Robertson recommends Nordic walking poles, which she said have the added benefit of making you look like an athlete and can be fitted with rubber tips for better grip.

"They're a fantastic idea, increasing your base of support," she said. "They take some load off your joints and they do increase your balance."
